The joysticks we have are selected with the following options. These are the same joystick we use in our tactical remotes. They are great compact, rugged, IP rated, etc. (These are what we have in stock, we can order custom ones, but there is a long lead time.)
This aluminum heat sink is designed for integrated circuits (IC) of electric components. It's easy to use, and provides the perfect cooling effect for your project.
This is a prebuilt version of TP-251-003, our programmable triangular omni wheel vectoring robot. It can vector in any direction and is great for indoor robotics. An Arduino Mega and encoders allow for this to be an autonomous robot.
